SANTA MONICA, CA (February 6, 2013) – MTV today announced a second season pick-up of its hit new series “BUCKWILD.” The half-hour, 12-episode series follows a group of nine young, carefree and adventurous friends living in West Virginia, who find unique ways to create their own fun. Since the series premiere last month, “BUCKWILD” ranks as #1 rated original cable series of Thursday nights among P12-34, while pulling in an average of 3 million total viewers per episode (Live +3). Additionally, MTV has two of the top three rated cable series of the first quarter of 2013 among P12-34, with “Catfish: The TV Show” as #2 and “BUCKWILD” as #3.*

Leading into the upcoming season one finale on Thursday, February 7, MTV will air interstitial interviews with the entire “BUCKWILD” cast from West Virginia throughout the night beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, as they prepare to watch the end of the first season that introduced them to fans across the country.

Then, in the first episode airing at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, romance begins to blossom between Katie and Tyler. To put him to the test, Katie invites Tyler to meet her mom, but problems arise when Ashley throws an unexpected wrench into the relationship. Meanwhile, Joey learns that letting Shae drive his truck means more than what he had in mind.

Afterwards, in the final episode of the first season airing at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, Shain tries one last time to win over Cara, the girl he’s been vying for since she moved to town. Then, the gang takes their last trip of the summer to the lake and battles an epic self-made human slingshot. Check out a sneak peek clip here (embed code below).

Following the season finale, viewers can check out “Bucking Unseen Moments” at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

They find ‘unique ways to create their own fun’? I’m glad MTV classifies the sale of hard-core drugs like meth as creating fun. MTV has always been great for mind-numbing programming but my god if people actually watch this stuff for pleasure then I think it is too late for our society and maybe we should just start over.
It’s just irresponsible for MTV to be on air anymore. Whether they want to believe it or not (although they probably revel in it) the youth of today want to emulate what they see on the boob tube, these people are cool to kids and that is sad.
MTV could show teens that are focused on school and getting to college, you know, positive influences. But I guess that wouldn’t get as good of ratings as Snooki getting punched in the face by a dude. The comments above prove exactly what I’m saying.
